上海拉面小笼包 Shanghai La Mian Xiao Long Bao at Alexandra Village Food Centre (#01-56) sells lovely Dumplings 水饺 ($5.00 for 10) & Xiao Long Baos 小笼包 ($5.00 for 7). Was very satisfied with these steamed freshly on the spot. Had to wait 5 mins for these to be ready, but it was worth it.

I lunched here during an off-peak hour, so there was only 1 person in front of me in the queue. Normally, during peak hour there is a long line at this stall!

The XLBs had very umami soup inside, & the skin is of the thickness & softness that it should be. It doesn't break easily either, so there's little to no soup wastage due to accidents.

The dumplings were filled with lots of meat, which delights me. Very value for money. The same can be said about the skin here too.

I also like how you help yourself to the ginger & vinegar at the stall, because I generally eat a mountain of ginger & less vinegar than the average person. So I can #optimize, here.

I immediately bought some frozen ones to bring home & steam when I need a quick fix for a meal. They come in bags of 10 each - $6.50 per bag of XLB, $4.50 per bag of dumplings. Pretty competitive pricing for such excellent quality!

This stall also accepts GrabPay, so you can earn Grab points here 👍🏻

Such a delicious and hearty bowl of hand pulled noodles in meaty sauce. The red oil dumplings ft. in the background is another favourite. This I would brave the queues and heat for.

My must-order at Alexandra Village Food Centre is definitely ShangHai La Mian Xiao Long Bao’s Guo Tie 锅贴 ($6/10 pieces). Plump dumplings that never disappoint, they are packed with a delicious amount of meaty broth just like what you would find in a xiao long bao.

Served pipping hot, the soft meat parcels are usually prepared upon order. All snugly wrapped up, each morsel was a burst of savoury goodness though it tends towards the sweet side. A balanced skin-to-filling ratio, it’s skin also had just the right thickness and texture - while not super thin, it was not too chewy. But of course, the most addictive part is the beautiful paper-thin and crisp bottom. Love the slight charred flavour from the browned base!


The handmade noodles were generous and had a nice texture to it which I really enjoyed. However the meat gravy/sauce component was abit bland to me and the minced meat was abit on the stingy side as well, which left me slightly dissatisfied. The cucumbers on the other hand gave the dish a nice cooling/crunchy texture which helped to balance out the meat sauce.

$6 for 10 pcs


Expect to have a queue during evenings when it’s dinner time.

Fillings are full of meat and skin is not thick. Pack with juices, it spurts the minute you bite into the dumpling.

Springy long lamian with marinated minced meat. Noodles are very Q and affordable for such portion.
